Softsoap's New Decor Collection

We have family over often for dinner and with my family being big and then adding another 5 guest to our home we go through soap a lot.


Softsoap has always been cheap and I even purchase it when we go on vacations because of it being cheap and smells great. Now Softsoap has come out with the new Decor Collection of liquid hand soaps. Not only does the new Decor Collection smell great it looks great as well.

The normal Softsoap bottle is shorter round and pretty basic, but the new Decor Collection has nice upright clear bottles with a floral background. The Decor Collection comes in 3 wonderful scents Orchid Petals & Mint Water (blue) Peony & Plum (pink) and Wild Basil & Lime (green). I personally love the Wild Basil & Lime. I love the new Decor Collection because now I can place it in the second bathroom and make my guest feel a little more special.

Immaculate Cookie, Cakes and Brownies oh my!



My family is big on sweets, I love the candy and the rest love the baked goods. Like you know I have a pretty good size family so I am always looking to save money. One way I save money is to purchase mixes, they last longer and seem to provide more than a self packaged box.

Immaculate has come all kinds of baked goods like cake mixes, brownie mixes and more much more. You can purchase all Immaculate products at Target. Immaculate baked goods are so great. They taste great and always seem to be more rich in flavor then other mixes.


The Chocolate Cake and Yellow cake mix are scratch baking mix which have no bleached flour, are all natural and have no artificial flavors, in other words you can pronounce and know everything which is in your mix.

Brownies ohhhhhh Brownies this is the one baked good I do enjoy. Normally I like to add a little extra to the brownie batter but with Immaculate I honestly never feel the need. The texture of the Brownie always comes out tasting great. They are thick almost fudge like they just melt in your mouth.


Finally you have Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookie mix, that's right Gluten Free. So now its not only already good its great because more family members can now enjoy. I love also that each product of Immaculate has peoples art which has a small piece about the art and the person who made it.

Immaculate baked goods can be found in all major grocery stores and Target. Check out all of Immaculate products by clicking here.

Tooth Tunes a Fun Way to Brush


School is coming up fast and we want our kids to look their best and they wanna look their best so what better than with Tooth Tunes.

Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes are a fun way to wake up and jam while brushing your teeth. I like how many songs there are to choose from I got "We will rock you" by Queen,  Kids Bop I love it and "Rock n Roll All Night" by Kiss, my kids wake up and fight over the sink on who gets to brush first now.



The kids really like the Tooth Tunes that they even brush before bed. So now I went from clean kids to really clean because they brush both day and night just because they like to jam out. Each Arm & Hammer Tooth Tune comes in soft head and plays 2 full minutes of music. Thanks to the Tooth Tune toothbrushes my kids also know how long to brush the top and bottom of their teeth when the song is over they know they did a good brushing.

You can pick up Tooth Tunes at your local retail stores. They make for a great back to school gift as well. See which your child would like by clicking here.

Alabama a Place Worth Checking Out...............Giveaway

Summer is almost done but it doesn't mean you still can't take a vacation and when thinking about where you wanna go this year why not think Alabama. As the band Lynyrd Skynyrd says Sweet Home Alabama where the skies are blue.

Alabama is a beautiful state full of live and country. Montgomery, Alabama is the capital of the state, if you need your city life this is where you wanna be. Montgomery has a lot of new buildings which make up the city as well as older buildings which really make for a awesome night scene.


If your into Collage Football you know about Auburn, and Tuscaloosa, home of two of the top rated teams in collage football the Crimson Tide Elephants and Auburn Tigers two teams which dominate often in the Collage bowls. If you live in the state you know how divided it is and each team has much supported love from the states people. 

When you think of Alabama what else comes to mind? For me I think country, lots of streams, lakes, and just nature. You can travel throughout the state and find all kinds of beauty like the Monte Sano State Park in Birmingham, Alabama. Monte Sano, Spanish for “Mountain of Health,” rises more than 1,600 feet above sea level. The mountain has attracted visitors since the mid 1820’s with the establishment of the town of Viduta, a derivative of the Spanish word “Vida,” meaning life.  Viduta was home to a sanatorium and a hotel resort, Hotel Monte Sano, which opened its doors in 1887 and closed in the early 1900s due to a declining economy. It is truly a place to capture nature at its best. It cost $2 per person during normal days and $3 during holidays. 

Did you know Alabama has beaches? Since I live in Florida I often forget that other places besides here and California have beaches even though a lot of the country does I just don't think about it since we are like known for ours. But come to find out Alabama has some pretty nice Golf beaches of their own. Orange Beach is a nice family friendly beach which has plenty of ocean for all. It especially has a nice sunset : )


Next time you think of a vacation why not think Alabama.

When did...............

(My little rant its all over the place but I did it release some building stress and figure hey why not)

We as humans become so sad? I mean I was taught so many things yet somehow things have changed and its not for the greater good.

Last night I was watching tv and it was late you know the hours when all the "Live" links, chats and so on come on. So one basically just got to the point which was Ashley Madison which they had a bunch of married men signing "I am looking for someone other than my wife"...................WOW I was speechless! I mean okay we know most people who do that are having a affair but you don't wanna hear about it, because its not right, if your gonna do that don't get married. I mean marriage seems to be a joke now a days. I know growing up ( I am 30 now) divorce was starting to be more heard of and now its like higher than marriage itself.

I had cheated on my husband it was horrible, I was lonely and had 3 kids before the age of 25? so I was still young but yet I was married with 3 kids. My husband never would come home after I would beg and so on he would hang out at his parents and play video games and whatever til late hours of night if he would even show up so I said screw it and did what I did. Long story short finally when I came out and had told him what I had did, (only hoping he would admit to doing the same) we had a huge falling out. I thought for sure things were over. Somehow we pulled through and ended up staying together. Now I face him not trusting me breathing down my back and going through everything in my life as if I am cheating on him again. I promise I learned my lesson and it was not worth it. I mean if you get to this point talk it out first and if you can't come to some agreement get a divorce, because if you think you might cheat or if you did cheat its gonna come out and its sooooooooooooo not worth it. It makes the marriage stronger, yet also the trust more harder.

Another fun thing is I know no matter where I was if a ambulance was coming down the road or a firetruck was coming down the road you would move over now we all kinda lay on breaks but stay in our lanes and keep going. What has changed that we just don't care to move out of the way, I can say personally I think well I am not in the way, followed with if I do, do what is right will the person behind me let me back on the road? Why should I think that???

Fun fact did you know most people would choose their phone over sex? That's nuts to think that we are so dependent on cell phones and computers. I know Charley was a hard reality check. We had no power for a week, which is nothing compared to some but simple things like driving on the road without lights other than your headlights. I know a very busy area me and my sister in law came up on and only knew where we were because of the railroad tracks but everything was so different because there was no lights. Cell phones were hit or miss a lot of us lined up in front of pay phones to make a call to friends and family to say we are okay. Which I used to know EVEREYONES phone number now I am lucky if I know my own. Why because I have a sim card which keeps all that information for me.

I was watching a thing on History about how the government spys on us 24/7. Not sure if you had seen on the news a few months back of someone who hacked a baby monitor and was calling the baby names and so on through the monitor but a lot of our live is not so secret anymore. Almost all laptops now a days have  the built in feature of a webcam, did you know that someone could be watching even if the light is not on? They can turn it on whenever they want, same with cells, you think having a thumb print to get in your phone is great, yeah sounds neat until you think that they are using it to document you.

It just blows my mind how we think we are advancing but really we are not. I challenge you to go without your phone for a week. I have done it not by choice I just didn't have the means to pay for the bill so I went without and it seriously felt like I was going through withdraw because I couldn't text my friend to say omg I just had a thought or call my mom to say Hi because it was quite, but after the week went by I realized I wasn't as stressed and why because I was not on call 24/7 so when I was in my car no one could call me, or text me or whatever I had no means of communication and it was nice. I bet we as humans have much more health issues and high blood pressure than any other generation before us and why because we are always accessible.

Anyhow this is my blog and my personal little rant I like to write things out and why not share when I do. Its a great way to let lose of stress for me personally I hope you don't hate me for who I am or what I right, I know we all have our own opinions and this is mine : )

Alpina Yogurt Smoothies

My kids are already fans of yogurt which I like the ones which you can drink because its a great breakfast for them in the morning as we run around getting ready.


Alpina, has come out with new Low Fat yogurt Smoothie which is made with 1% milk fat. I love that on the Alpina yogurts you can read and know what your eating. The smoothies are great tasting treats which are both yummy but also healthy for you. Did you know that the more yogurt you have in your diet the less likely you are to get sick? I have seen it with my own eyes my mom eats yogurt daily and when the flu comes along she comes over to help so while my whole family is sick she is able to stay healthy and not once catch the flu.

Alpina Smoothies come in 4 yummy flavors: Strawberry, Vanilla, Mango and Strawberry Banana. My oldest son is picky about eating and one of his favorite things is strawberry banana smoothies from McDonalds, but they cost a lot so its nice to have Alpina yogurt smoothies as a cheaper option and better for him.

I love Alpina Smoothies when I have to work its a great start to my day and since it is drinkable its a fast meal to go.  Alpine also has other great products like Bon Yurt which is a fun way to mix in some of your favorite cookies with your favorite yogurts. You can see the whole line of Alpina by clicking here.

Balance Bar Summer Shape Up Challenge! #Giveaway


As a mom on the go I eat a lot of fast food which I noticed was starting to catch up with me, so I started looking into ways to cut the pounds but not have to change much in my life style. Balance Bars were my answer.


So with my Walmart gift card in hand I headed over to Walmart to stock up on my new mommy diet. I was amazed at just how many flavors I could pick from. Did you know Balance Bars come in 20 different flavors! A lot of the flavors are chocolate, yes CHOCOLATE! I personally love the Cookie Dough and the Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato.  The reason Balance Bar has its name is because it is perfectly balanced with 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Protein and 30% Dietary Fat which helps fill you up and gives you energy that lasts through your daily activities.


To make things even better right now you can join the Balance Bar Summer Shape Up challenge which is a 40 Day Challenge filled with 30-minute workouts, healthy eating tips and multiple social media giveaways.  Now I have my mommy diet and can kick myself in rear to get out there and exercise. I also found out from the challenge that it helps to have others join you so it makes doing the work outs more like fun outs : ) your not thinking of the pain because your enjoying the friends. 

What are you waiting for why not join. “Like” Balance Bar on Facebook and Follow Balance Bar on Twitter so you can keep up with everyone on their weigh lost journeys and learn some helpful tips. 



Enter to win a $10 Gift Card to Walmart and a Variety Pack of Balance Bars. Open to U.S. residents only, contest will end August 15, 2014.
